Title: Chemometric Analysis and Spectroscopy in Caries Detections
Ultraviolet (UV) spectroscopy is a technique that measures light absorption of an analyte. It can be applied in dental materials investigations and caries detection. UV spectroscopy coupled with chemometric analysis can be used for caries detection in saliva samples. Difference in caries severity can be measured with the absorption spectrum and analysed with chemometric models.
